so I'm getting into the business of selling my hatching eggs. I had thought to do it locally, but am thinking about selling some on e-bay. I have one rooster. Is it ok genetically to breed that rooster with his 'children'? My instinct is, no. But I thought I would check just in case things are different in the chicken world. This isn't so much of a problem now, but in spring when the chicks I have from him start laying. I'm debating a second rooster. The other question I have is about sex links. Black sex links in particular. Now, I know that to get a black sex link you breed a RIR rooster with a Barred rock hen. I have some in a brooder now How would you advertise these eggs? I've seen other people post laughing about how they saw this ad somewhere and the person was selling 'sex link' hatching eggs, and they didn't think the person knew that a sex link mated with a sex link didn't breed true. But is their any other way to note that what you have are indeed black sex link hatching eggs? Now back to selling hatching eggs. Can anyone give me the how to's on shipping hatching eggs? I don't have any really unique breeds, but I thought it might help the ladies pay for their feed if I could sell eggs for more than $2/dozen which is what eggs go for around her.
